In the 4 years we have been doing this whole pumpkin patch gig, we have always felt the need to go to two patches, to double our fun? Who knows…the combinations are usually different, but one patch has remained consistent. There is a smaller patch a few miles down the road, it has a little bit of everything that you look for in a patch: hayride, farmer’s market, animals, corn maze, candy apples etc. but the one thing it doesn’t have is the crowds! It is the perfect little patch and we have been every year, with the exception of 2012. You can read about our first visit here and our trip last year here.
Look how scary this is…
The first picture is with me and Victoria in 2011 and the second is the one with me and Amelia this year. Apparently I have a standard pumpkin patch outfit and so do my children…so weird!
And while we are comparing, check out Victoria on the pumpkin haystacks, my favorite part about this farm!
As you can see, she has gotten a lot braver in a year, standing on the haystack like she is Queen of the Pumpkins.
Victoria’s 1st Halloween and Amelia’s 1st Halloween at our favorite little patch!
We went to this patch the day before Amelia’s baptism, so we had family in town to share in this experience. My mom, dad, stepdad, brother and his girlfriend all made it out to the patch. It is a good this Grandpa drives a Traverse!
We had a great morning at our favorite little patch!!
